Three regional winter highways are to be completed in the Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Area by the end of the year. The press centre of the regional government has confirmed it on Thursday.
'This year, three regional winter roads will be set up in the area. These are the Aksarka – Salemal – Panayevsk – Yar-Sale one, the Labytnangi – Muzhi – Azovy – Tegi one, the Korotchayevo –Krasnoselkup one. The ice bridge between Salekhard and Labytnangi is also scheduled to open,' reports TASS.
The construction work on the ice bridge is already underway. 'After we reach the thickness level we need to allow vehicles weighing up to 3.5 tons on the ice bridge, we will immediately open two lanes to traffic. Our goal is to do that by the end of November,' says the press centre of Artyom Koryakin, Head of the Salekhard Road Maintenance and Repair Department. The work on the Korotchayevo – Krasnoselkup route has also started, and it is scheduled to open first as usual.
At the end of November, road builders will proceed with the Labytnangi – Muzhi – Azovy – Tegi road. The work on the Aksarka – Salemal – Panayevsk – Yar-Sale highway is planned to begin after a certain ice thickness level is reached.
